This is sad to hear. He has been around racing since I can remember! You would always notice hin because he towered over everyone, (except Richard) He will be greatly missed especially around the racing community! My deepest condolences go out to the whole Nelson family!!

Heart felt condolences to the Nelson family. I'll personally miss him and the bar stool, along with the wealth of knowledge he carried with him.

God is gathering a lot of great people from around our racing family! Richard and family I am deeply saddened to hear of Roger "dad"s passing. With the Nelson's and Hathaway's we enjoyed some great racing times and made great friendships. Thanks for letting us be apart of that. God bless you all with thoughts, prayers and love! Richard and Vickie and the entire Crew including Big Scott!

With tremendous sorrow and sadness that I again have to announce the passing of one of our USLMA family members. Just as we mourn Kathy Hathaway, our dearest tech official, one of the founding partners in USLMA, dearest friend and family member Roger has succumb to an apparent heart attack. Roger Nelson, 81 of Pueblo, Colorado joined our lord and savior on February 19, 2010. Our sympathy and condolences go out to the entire family. As arrangements are finalized, we will be sure to pass them along.

If anyone has pictures to share, please forward to racing@uslma.us

Regards

Jeff “Sledge” Larsen
President USLMA

I don't know if this is legal but I am posting this for those of you who knew Roger but did not get all the information or the link to leave a personal message.


Dale “Roger” Nelson

Dale “Roger” Nelson, 81, was born Jan. 16, 1929, in Clintonville, Wis., and passed away Feb.19, 2010. He was preceded in death by his parents; his brother; and four sisters. He is survived by his loving wife Elsie, whom he was married to for 57 years; his children and their spouses, Mary Kay (Alan) Hamel, Jayne (Vern) Curtis, Richard (Pattie) Nelson and Janet "Chickie" Nelson; and his grandchildren, Nathan (Hannah Ingles) Hamel, Lisa Hamel and Allie Marie Nelson. Roger also is survived by his special nephew, Jim Mauss and his family; his sisters, Marion Werth, Rosella Gartzke and Lois Kreklow; and numerous nieces and nephews in Wisconsin. He served in the 5th Infantry Regiment of the 1st Cavalry Division and participated in five major campaigns in Korea. He was awarded numerous medals and was honorably discharged from the United States Army on Oct. 12, 1952. Roger was employed by CF&I for 32 years and upon his retirement, he was general foreman – maintenance of the seamless tube mill. He was a member of BPOE No. 90, a head tech official for the United States Late Model Association and at Beacon Hill/I-25 Speedway, and a NASCAR member. His passions in life were his family, building race cars and street rods, attending Late Model races and car shows throughout the Southwest, visiting his buddies at their shops, and seeing his mill friends for lunch on Fridays. He will be dearly missed by his wife, children and grandchildren, but will be remembered forever. There will be no viewing. Cremation, Montgomery & Steward Crematorium. Memorial Mass, 10:30 a.m. Friday, Feb. 26, 2010, Holy Family Catholic Church, 2827 Lakeview Ave., with the Rev. Father Heriberto Torres as celebrant. Concluding with military honors by the Pueblo Veterans Ritual Team. Online condolences, MontgomerySteward.com
